A Note From Kent

Desolation Mountain by William Kent Krueger

“…elegiac and frightful…”
New York Times

“…a winning mystery with more than a few surprises”
Publishers Weekly

“Krueger keeps up the tension and mystery…”
Minneapolis Star Tribune

Desolation Mountain, #17 in my Cork O’Connor series, is now on sale. This is a fun thriller that takes a jab at covert government operations, the greed of the corporate culture, and the lunacy of renegade militias. All the usual cast is front and center, with Henry Meloux deep at the heart of things, although he’s well past his century mark. The rich culture of the Anishinaabeg and the stunning landscape of the great North Woods add luster to the tale. The ending is a corker, but don’t you dare read that first.

For anyone who enjoyed Ordinary Grace, I’ve completed the manuscript for the companion novel, This Tender Land, currently due to be published in the fall of 2019. It’s a special story, and I’ll be talking more about it later.
